Essence Beloved is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark pink with a semi-matte finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $2.99 and contains 0.17 oz.
Essence Beloved The Blush ($2.99 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep pink with moderate, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The powder looked nearly matte to my eye, but applied and blended out, it looked like it had a more natural finish--still matte and not at all noticeably shimmery.
It had rich color coverage, so I'd recommend using a light-to-moderate hand to pick up product if one wanted to build up color (as the formula was described as buildable). The texture was soft, smooth, and not too firmly nor too softly pressed into the pan. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
